of the united states. president barack obama is campaigning there today as part of his road to charlotte. athena jones is traveling with the president. will the focus be much different from the looking forward kind of concept that he delivered in iowa on saturday? >> reporter: we expect the focus to be much the same responding to some extent to what we heard from the republicans at their convention last week. but as you mentioned, this is day two of the road to charlotte tour that the campaign is calling it. you can see the crowd behind me. they've lined up since early this morning, they are still making their way in. the president is expected to take the stage in about 30 minutes. this is an important battleground states. it only has nine electoral votes. but when you try to get to the magic number of 270, every little bit counts. it is going to be important to their calculus here. i should mention that the president has been to colorado 11 times since taking office. this is his eighth trip this year alone. so it shows you just how important colorado is to their campaign, fredricka. >> so the p
. >> does it surprise you that the united states doesn't take any other actions other than what they call nonlethal support? do it surprise you they don't want to arm the rebels, for instance or talk about a no-fly zone or buffer zone or safe zones? >> translator: right now there are certain things being expected from the united states. the united states had not yet catered to those expectations. maybe it's because of the elections, maybe it's because of the pre-election situation in the states. nobody has spoken to us about their reasons and they are not obliged to state anything. we're very thankful and pleased they have stated they are against this regime. >> it's good to see you. hearing what he said, can you give me a broader context of what he was explaining? >> reporter: i think he's very frustrated. he's a good friend of united states and a good friend to the obama administration. he didn't want to come out and directly sledge hammer the obama administration but he did say he is frustrated. perhaps the elections are playing part in the fact that the united states is not leading in

are bringing on the productive nominee. person you want to be president of the united states. my god did we need laughs. well, actually, i think this jon stewart says. everyone will poke funnel of it i saw him more as a warm jump for marco rubio. he was earnest. this was a warm-up. more like don rickles than american politics. you have -- geraldo, hold on. you have said anything similar about the following liberal people in celebrity don. >> this isn't about liberal and conservative. this is about my wanting mitt romney to be presented in a way -- romney's speech was terrific. he was strong and humane. >> is he not romney. is he an actor. >> whether you have this kind of distraction where is he making sex jokes about the president of the united states. there is no nobility there. >> laura: okay. >> tongue in cheek are brilliantly clever satire. it's nothing. just a guy going up vamping. i could go up and vamp for 12 minutes i could be funnier than that what it looked like was an 82-year-old man who lost his way. that's what it looked like. >> laura: i love you, geraldo, you could never have

of the united states off the ground. i'll talk to the man who did it. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with important news just in to "the situation room." our brand-new poll shows president obama receiving a significant bounce from the democratic national convention. he now leads mitt romney 52% to 46%. that's among likely voters nationwide. all this according to our brand-new cnn orc poll. let's get to our chief national correspondent, john king, over at the magic wall. >> a six-point national lead. the president benefited most from his convention. let's look deeper at the other numbers. let's look here -- here's one of the big reasons why. this is among men. the republicans almost always have a big advantage among men. the president, this is a tie essentially. the president with a one-point lead among men. but look at the difference. going into the democratic convention, it was governor romney who had a big lead a 12-point lead among men. that's one of the reasons the president comes out of his convention in much stronger shape. then you ask people who's best in
the president of the united states address the people of america in his acceptance speech, and i read that this morning, and you haven't perhaps gotten a chance to do that, but if you did, perhaps like me, you found it extraordinarily disappointing. surprisingly disappointing, because his speech four years ago he laid out a whole series of lofty goals, and unfortunately, he was unable to meet them. as a matter of fact, i can think of very few of the promises that he made four years ago that he has kept. he said he'd raise incomes for people, and in fact, they have gone down by $5,000 a family. he said he'd create more new businesses, and people who wanted to start a business would be encourage d to do so, be but in fact, we are at a 30-year low in new business start-ups. he would get the people back the work. you remember with his stimulus plan, the stimulus said that if we let him borrow $787 billion, he would hold unemployment below 8%, but it has been 43 straight months above 8%, and today, 23 million americans stop looking for work or out of work or underemployed. it is a national
. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together to promote growth and broadly share prosperity. you see, we believe that we
forces by the date certain that the united states is going to depart. if you stop the recruitment and revet all of the troops you would extend the amount of time before the united states reaches the level where it should say to the military that it's time for us to depart. but the united states says we're going to leave at this date. so the concern would be are you now going to try to accelerate the recruitment and training. the vetting process itself works well it just hasn't been enforce ed. >> do you think that perhaps there is a possibility that the u.s. will pull out earlier? >> no, i don't think so. not at all. i think what's important is the united states and nato have demonstrated a partnership with the afghans that is really unprecedented and unmatched. the united states is going to lean into the wind. they're not going to back off because we have got this trouble spot. they are instituting the rules and regulations they have in place. they are being more aggressive about those and they are also instituting a couple of extra steps in that there might be what is known as t
. >> it is tragic. >> the drug was widely distributed but not ever approved in the united states. an extraordinary thing, the fda looked at it, studied it and one particular scientist, a courageous woman said no, we can't do this they put enormous pressure her. john kennedy gave her a medal because that lady's determination kept thalidomide from being approved in the united states and it was widely used in clinical trials and they gave it to their patients and those women, their children are still trying to get reimbursed. >> incredible. in this day and age no one is prescribing it, louie. we hope no one is prescribing thalidomide to mothers who are mothers to-be and are feeling nauseous. it is being used but to treat other things. >> the fda didn't approve it in 1961 and they did approve it for leprosy and bone marrow cancer and it is a successful drug and is being used but it cannot escape the shadow of that horror of the early '60s. it's a lesson to us all about how careful we all have to be. >> john mann, appreciate that. >>> a former store manager for the national clothing chain wet seal says
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
of the island and here in the united states, the east coast is not out of play either. so let's get right to alexandra steel. she is at cnn hurricane headquarters. what can you tell us? >> it's not as bad as it could be for bermuda. bermuda sees hurricanes about three every ten years and it's moving farther east than we'd seen it before. this is the atlantic. we do have two hurricanes at play. there's leslie. here is michael. this is a category 2, it is small, tight, powerful. 105-mile-an-hour winds. good news, won't affect anyone, won't affect land. so with that, our attention turns to leslie. now, right now it's category 1, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles an hour. what's happened is it has sat over the same space, kind of the cold water for the last 18 hours or so. so we have not seen any intensification. so that is the good news. here is the projected path. now, you can see here is bermuda right now, it's about 430 miles south/southeast of bermuda, expected to make the past farther east than earlier thought sunday morning. so here are the impacts. this area east of haley fax cou ha
here in the united states of america. >> the problem with saying that these are good jobs is the facts don't seem to support it. some of of the jobs were temporary and paid for by the stimulus or perhaps census work or that sort of thing. so they did not last. and some of the jobs are not worth the jobs that we lost. a variety of studies say we lost more middle to upper income jobs an gained more lower level jobs. the simple truth is that the numbers may be technically correct in some of the claims, but when you look at all of the details, there is an awful lot more that needs to be seen. this is tom foreman, charlotte. >>> the b.t. founder bob johnson was not a fn of president obama four years ago, so what has actually changed? we will talk to him live in a moment. on once empty fields. everyday you see all the ways all of us at us bank are helping grow our economy. lending more so companies and communities can expand, grow stronger and get back to work. everyday you see all of us serving you, around the country, around the corner. us bank. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ there's another way to help
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
, but bring those resources home and invest here in the united states and that is not a message mitt romney can deliver, so therefore what, he just kind of skirted the issue and tries to talk tough on china. >> he is quite remarkable. joy, can i ask, are the next 60 days going to be utterly frenzied as the candidates travel seeking voters where ever they can find them? >> one thing you're going to want to do in a swing state like florida, turn the channel quickly when they come on. they're really inundated people and i think the dvr is going to become the most valuable tool. they're going to inundate people with so many ads. we are really going to know how this thing is shaking out baseded on where these guys go. if you don't see mitt romney in pennsylvania, that's sending you a signal of where they think they can and cannot win. it will be interesting to see if romney goes to ohio and how much time he spends there. if you don't see him harping on those states -- i can tell you that talking to obama campaign people, they're pretty confident about the math. >> thank you so much. >>> next, le
. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america, an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the convention speech as the keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000. the democratic nominee delivered an electrifying speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, even if you don't have boots, you are on your own. [ cheers and applause ] >> well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for a third speech at the democratic national con
to be president of the united states and you're going to sit here and invest your money overseas and not invest it in the united states, what kind of leader or you? you take care of the people who elect you. you take care of the people who have faith in you. there is nothing about bain that we really ought to be applauding. look, yes. sports authority and a few jobs and it was just said most of these jobs didn't even -- the wages didn't even keep up with inflation in this country. elderly people also understand too. when these countries we want bankrupt, in order for him to make money, in order for bain to make money, a lot of people's pensions went down the drain and their health care went with it. people understand takeover. people understand corporate sharks. people understand something that was said in that movie wall street. for a lack of a better word, greed is good, and romney has been greedy. who in their right mind runs a campaign on labor day and invites the press to show you getting on a yacht? >> and sailing. but let me go back to you quickly, crystal. harry reid said we don't know
sort of balance. >> well, when the president of the united states offered a $4 trillion cut to spending, republicans pushed it away. now the president did sign into law a $2 trillion cut, that's reality. doesn't get credit for it but the president did offer a grand bargain and republicans refused to accept it. >> so then we head into the conversations about jobs, sort of this number that you talk about but i think there's a measurement that is how people feel. you can talk about bottoming out and 4.5 million jobs and the number was much bigger, et cetera, if people don't feel job secure, that's a huge problem. >> you're absolutely right. if you didn't get one of those 4.5 million jobs, you can't be happy. the economy is growing and we've added jobs. that's a reality and there are some amazing things going on in the united states. things that we should be very proud of. one of which is the creation of 4.5 million jobs but many other things, support for education going up. now the republicans want to roll that back. they want to attack pel grants. we have to tell both sides of the story a
europe the president of the united states, you've been there for four years, they can't get through one sentence without mentioning george w. bush, that's not what president obama got elected to do. most people are disenfranchised. they look at the hope, the change, the bringing the kcounty together. we're not the red states, the blue states, we're the united states. where did that go? all of that has gone out the door. >> it went out the door with some republicans in congress. >> no, but that's not the way that it operated and i think the country recognizes it's off track. i think they do want to turn around. that's the whole premise of the romney/ryan presidency, the candidacy. and that's where i think mitt romney will be the next president of the united states. we do need a turnaround, somebody who knows about jobs and the economy, somebody who knows about business. that's why mitt romney will be the next president. >> the democrats are happy to have this comparison between do you want to go back to the clinton years or the bush years? what do republicans point to? what decade of gov
